Pros

Good for a learning ground for beginners straight out of college. Being a small company gives you a lot of growth opportunities personally.

Cons

Does not provide enough appreciation for the good job performed. The work style at Agate reminds me a little of when I was back in school with strict rules and times that I need to be at work.

    Pros

    The company focuses on trying to build a team environment. They bring in food on a regular basis and try to offer a happy hour every month.

    Cons

    The way and manor in which clients are billed is not clear, concise, or realiable. The pay could be way more competitive. They try not to focus on "titles", but when it comes to review time, bonuses, and raises, they strictly relie on this terrible excel spreadsheet that they deem is their reasoning. The small perks they offer is just a way to keep people somewhat content and a way to not offer raises.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better trainer, and update the training procedures. Team leads need to be consistent across the board when it comes to work, procedures and training. Companies don't lose employees , management loses employees.

    I worked at Agate Software full-time

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot since the company is small and you can make good progress pretty quickly.

    Cons

    The company works with a manufacturing mindset. You need to be at work at 8am and can only leave at 5pm. You need explicit permission if you have to run out for a little bit in the middle of the day. I was treated pretty badly given my educational background.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and they will respect you back. Don't demand the respect and impose restrictions like they're high-schoolers.
